i m using this phone from a month
it is very fine
my brother hav n82 and i compared n79 pics with n82
n82 night pics are good but day pics are same..
n79 hav better battery tim..
i would say n79 is 100 times better then n82
My favourite phone yet. The only negatives are it tends to eat the battery when I'm online and that it loses the signal more easily than my N73. Superb in every other way.
hello everyone..iam using nokia phones for many years..iam planning to buy a new nokia phone..i want good camera and also good music.. i came across N82 and N79..iam realy confused.. plzzzzzz help me.. which is gud? N82 or N79? thanx in advance...
Roger, 22 Aug 2009what about the nokia 5800? im getting all the features of the N79 but much better... i hope lolThanks Roger.
I only like the 'bar' kind phone. 5800 is sliding type and also one of my frd has this. it crashes most of the time. The same problem is also with 5130 but it is little cheaper. What do you suggest.
r.e.a.p.e.r, 23 Aug 2009all i can say is that the n79 is one powerful smartphone.
may phone before n79 is the famou... moreyep, n82 is old and Im gonna buy n79 because it has more features, who cares if n82 have xenon but compared to n79, it has FM transmitter, express on covers and it is slimmer! But here @ the Philippines, n82 is more expensive than n79,.. n82 is P15,200 and n79 is P13,700
and because n79 is way more cheaper, Im gonna buy it! I want to wait for SE Satio but its price tag is also same as n97!
all i can say is that the n79 is one powerful smartphone.
may phone before n79 is the famous n82.
the reason i changed my phone fromn82 to n79 is that n82 is already old.
the reasons why i changed to n79 is because:
-longer battery life (7 days with singlr charge :))
-video light at night
-very good camera in day shots (same quality as n82 & n95 shots)
-faster OS S60v3 FP2
-can use microSD up to 32gb.(im using 16gb right now and tried 32gb and works perfectly w/o lag and slow downs)
-theme effects are pleasing
-most of the time its faster than the n82 (my cousin has a n82 w/latest firmware v31, my n79 black also have the latest FW v30)
-i have 600 images, 330 songs and 21 movies + 100 apps and games and it is fast, it doesnt lag.
-build quality is better than n82.
-OS is way better than N82 ( S60v3 Fp2 vs N82's Fp1)
-doesnt heat up whe using wifi ( my n82 is in very perfect condition yet it heats up)
-camera part doesnt heat up ( my n82's camera part heats up when you continuously use xenon flash.
-HW accelerator is not that important to me because i rarely play games on my phone. ( i have an itouch 16gb 2nd gen for gaming and music :))
and last but not the least...
this is only my temporary phone,
gonna buy pixon12 or nokia n900/rx-51 smartphone when it comes out later this year :)

Siw, 21 Aug 2009Is it wise if I switch from Nokia E71 to Nokia N79? pls. reply. Thanksthis phone has a lot of bugs in the software and the phone often freezes(about 5-6 times/week)and I have to pull out the battery and start it again.
the UI interface of this version of symbian is slowing down the phone and the transition effects can't be canceled
the accelerometer works only when you rotate the phone to the left.
the touch d-pad doesn't work in all the windows of the menu.
when in standby mode, there is no clock on the screen(the screen is turned off); I have tried changing this from the menu and read a lot of reviews about this and...there simply isn't a solution to this problem.
i like about this phone that it has a very good camera (photo and video), an FM-transmitter(i can play songs from my phone to my radio in the car) and the battery life is relatively good for a Symbian phone- about 4 days of standby(unlike my other phone -Nokia N95)
I bought this phone for about 350 euro, so it's kind of expensive considering all it's problems
at this price i could have boutht a better Sony-Ericsson
